The palace theater truly is a magical place. I was in attendance for the Joshua Bell performance and it was amazing. I am looking forward to my next visit to the the theater.

We went and saw Theresa Caputo at this venue. It is a beautiful old building. Sure it needs a few updates specifically the bathrooms that are down a couple flights of stairs. But overall, the seats are comfortable and the theater itself is reminiscent of a beautiful old-fashioned theater. I would definitely visit this venue again. Plenty of free off... More

Attended a benefit held back stage. It offered a different perspective. Overall, over many years it is still may favorite place to listen to a concert. Recently it was given a total remodel. Highly recommend!

We recently saw Celtic Woman at the Palace, and just love the venue. The inside has hand painted murals and the most comfortable seats I have ever sat upon in a theater such as this. We parked on the street, but one can purchase parking for $10.00 at the time of ticket purchase online.

I love this theatre. It is replete with decor from the best of times of theatre. The Palace Theatre should be labeled a "Historical Site" for it has retained the beauty that once belonged to an era when live performances were elegant and entertaining.

Plenty of comfortable seating...have been to the Palace for graduations, concerts and dance recitals. It is a gorgeously decorated space that is kept in good shape. Only drawback is the rest rooms are down a couple of flight of stairs however there is a handicapped rest room available in the front lobby.

My first show here was one I brought my niece to for her birthday. It was a Scooby Doo show that I bought on Groupon and unfortunately the quality was horrible. I go to Proctors in Schenectady a few times a year and this was by far the poorest quality show I have seen and it was not cheap! Parking... More

I had reservations about going to see an Irish Rock band in a place that had only seating. It was awesome! We were just under the balcony and the view was perfect. Lots of leg room and comfortable seats. The staff members were not only helpful but very friendly and willing to answer questions. The whole experience was super. The... More
